Suzanne Somers: Why Americans love ex-'Three's Company' sex bomb

October 10, 2013|by Scott Collins

When Suzanne Somers blurted out this week on TV that she and her husband are having sex several times a day, squeamish viewers might have cringed. But to students of the Somers ouevre, this was just another example of her pop-cultural brilliance. 

The 66-year-old former "Three's Company" star told CBS' "The Talk" this week that she visits funky town a couple of times a day. This directly contradicted the theories of human sexuality advanced by a certain side-shaved pop star named Miley Cyrus, who told "Today" that after 40, people really don't get any action.

What might seem remarkable is that viewers are still interested in what Somers has to say, given that her best-known TV role ended more than 30 years ago. That would be as Crissy, the stereotypically dumb-blond bombshell in "Three's Company," the hit ABC sex farce she departed in an acrimonious split. Translation: She held out for more cash, but the producers said no.
